Title: Last Fm logging Scrobbler
Post by: Bilgus on May 24, 2022, 06:48:24 PM
I've made the last fm logger into a plugin

We have the ability to run plugins at start-up so you could simply run scrobbler at start up

Last Fm Scrobbler

The Scrobbler plugin keeps a log of songs played and songs skipped

The plugin is TSR (Terminate and stay resident)
 it keeps a thread running to respond to playback events caches the track info and occasionally flushes data to disk
Quote
TSR is a term from the days of DOS
return as though the plugin finished, but it remains in memory
 


There are some new options, to activate the menu run the plugin a second time
Settings

Flush cache
    Write track data to disk immediately
Exit Plugin
   Quit the plugin
Back
  exit the plugin but leave running (resident)
